GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers finally came home to Lambeau Field 36 days after beating division rival Chicago in a must-win game that propelled them to a championship run.
It was one more celebration for a Super Bowl-winning season in front of more than 56,000 fans who paid $5 to spend one final hour with their team that returned the Lombardi Trophy to Titletown after 14 years with a 31-25 win over Pittsburgh on Sunday.
The trophy took a victory lap and players claimed their game-worn Super Bowl jerseys before chatting briefly about the experience that's just sinking in and what happens next.
Just when Green Bay can begin its title defense is unknown. The NFL's collective bargaining agreement expires at the end of the day March 3.
